I did not do it personally. You need 5 business days.

We set up Shopify and tried to get Shopify to work properly, but oddly it
is not designed to calculate California sales taxes properly for our
situation. We are located in the city of Tustin, CA in Orange County.
California expects us to collect sales taxes based on the counties where
the product is shipped TO if we have been in that location physically.
Since we go to various trade shows and conferences, it's too messy to try
and create lists and change them all the time. So we decided to collect,
and pay to the state, the sales taxes based on local tax rates regardless
of whether we have actually been there. But apparently in Shopify, the
only way to charge San Francisco county tax rates is you must set up a
'location' in San Francisco county...and then Shopify, because you have a
'presence' there, will charge actual local rates. So to get Shopify to
calculate rates properly, we must create bogus 'locations' in every
possible taxing district so Shopify then charges accurate local taxes. Why
doesn't Shopify set up their software to work properly in California?
